Why she wrote (for R)

Why she wrote

To use what was given
To rise from the fall
To become brave by being brave
To reach silent women
To translate the rain
To dance on the wind
To control her descent
To break the cycle of forsaking
To scream from another mouth
To hold dark to the light
To dream aloud
Because it was human
Because it was divine
To steal from the thief
To occupy her pain
To escape the clock
To speak for the dead
To sing of the living
To get out of her head
To be other than they’d named her
To leave the road
To become the river
To return what was owed
